Botox Injections in Redmond
Patients elect to have plastic surgery for many different reasons. Some want to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, some want to augment or minimize a part of the body, and some elect to have plastic surgery for medical reasons. Some patients want to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles without having surgery at all. For some, this is very doable with the use of Botox injections. For those patients for whom surgery is not an option, here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer Botox injections in Redmond so that our patients can be wrinkle-free and look their best.
Botox is actually an injectable protein that has been used for years. As we age, our skin sags, and this can lend itself to either the appearance of what is known as a “turkey neck,” or even small wrinkles, known as crow’s feet, around the eyes. When Botox is injected over time, these sagging muscles contract and relax, naturally smoothing out the wrinkles. Botox is a terrific idea for those who want smooth skin without surgery. The injections are also used to help with jaw pain, migraines, underarm sweating, and in some cases, Botox is used to treat depression.
Unlike surgery, there is no recovery time needed after a Botox injection, and patients can immediately resume normal activities, such as physical activity and work. There are little to no side effects with Botox, although some patients report a small amount of bruising at the recovery site which disappears within a few hours to days.
